Preserve Customizations to Oracle Workflows | Print |  E-mail
Written by Anil Passi   
Thursday, 25 October 2007
In this article, I would like to explain one of the least understood concepts in Oracle Workflows.
This is related to the Access Level/Customization Preservation in Oracle Workflows, and will be explained using a power point presentation.

The idea here is to help you preserve your customizations that are done to Standard Oracle Workflows.

Although doing customizations to standard products are not supported, however Oracle is somewhat relaxed when it
comes to customization made to Workflows.
In fact every implementation project involves some level of customization to the Account Generator workflow.

Please find the power point presentation that explains the Oracle Workflow customization preservation concepts.

Hi, I'm currently working on the Payables Invoice workflow. I have added the custom attachment so workflow can send invoice attachment to approver's email. It's working fine with the custom attachment but the original attachment from the seeded workflow does not show attached file extension (attachment body and attachment detail). I have to right click to choose application to open it since custom attachment added to the workflow. Please advise on how do I change the seeded body attachment to open automatically in IE. Thanks, Ryan
Query - Upload of PO Approval Workflow Customization showing errors?
written by Sac , February 05, 2008
Hi,
As per the client requirement, I have customized the PO approval Workflow

For customization i did take care that only those standard workflow processes are customized which are prescribed by Oracle as customizable.

For ex: PO Approval Top Process (Protection Level 1000)

1. All other custom processes are defined and then included in the standard processes.
2. I have done all this activity at an access level of 100 in Workflow Builder.
3. For every custom object in workflow i have checked the Preserve Customization checkbox
4. Though Preserve Customization Checkbox is not checked for PO Approval Top Process.
5. After Verifying the design in Workflow Builder i tried Uploading the Workflow to the instance but it is giving Errors

First I tried to upload in FORCE mode

1. Copying the customized poxwfpoa.wft file to PO_TOP/patch/115/import/US directory

Command execurted
$FND_TOP/bin/WFLOAD apps/simple4u 0 Y FORCE poxwfpoa.wft

After running this it was giving errors like

Display name conflict for ACTIVITY entitiy 'POAPPRV/APPROVE_AND_FORWARD_PO' with APPROVE_AND_FORWARD_THE_POsmilies/cheesy.gif:Bestellung genehmigen und weiterleiten

and so on ....like this

Then i tried it in UPGRADE Mode

$FND_TOP/bin/WFLOAD apps/simple4u 0 Y UPGRADE poxwfpoa.wft

after this it was giving errors like

MESSAGE 'POAPPRV/XML_NOT_SET' is protected, no changes were saved.
MESSAGE 'WFSTD/WFSTD_DEFAULT_VOTE' is protected, no changes were saved.
MESSAGE 'POAPPRV/EMAIL_PO_PDF_SUPP' is protected, no changes were saved.

ACTIVITY 'POAPPRV/BLANKET_PO_REAPPROVAL' is protected, no changes were saved.


Though after this i checked, by creating a purchase order, whether the customization have been uploaded or not to my surprise they got uploaded and workflow was working fine

But my problem is that why is this error is coming and in what all scenarios the workflow can fail because of this?

Please advice as i m not getting any clue to it !!

Will request forum members to reply ASAP.

Thanks,
Sachin Relan
